Another great self published book, that shows the small guys can write as well as those with million dollar publishers backing them.
The story starts off with the hero being disgraced and kicked out of the army. The only job he can get is as a support worker for those addicted to the internet- in this future, people spend all their time in online virtual reality worlds, such that they go bankrupt, and need people like the hero to help them out into the real world.
The story slowly develops, as the hero finds out there maybe more to the world than realised, and that AI's may have become as intelligent as humans. The book ends with a great twist, that also sets the stage for a sequel.
The only weak parts of the story are, when the hero tries to romance a robot. He gets all obsessed with her, following her everywhere, showing up at her house. I found this weird, & can't imagine anyone acting like this, even with a human. The scenes almost lost the author a star, but thankfully the books comes back on track, and ends with a bang.
Even though the book is fairly long, it doesn't slow down or become boring.
Overall, very strongly recommended.
